What to Look for in the Best Small Video Camera


Convenience is often the primary reason for choosing a small video camera. Thanks to modern technology, pocket cameras no bigger than most cell phones now feature high definition video images and other options you would never have thought possible just a few short years ago. Camera manufacturers these days are coming out with small video cameras with more options and capabilities, at a variety of price points. What should you look for, and how can you find the best compact video camera?

Simple to Use

Spontaneity is the selling point behind small video cameras. They lack many of the capabilities of full size cameras but it is their very simplicity that makes them attractive to many people. With a few buttons (that you can count on the fingers of one hand), you can begin to capture, record and view your videos.

Compact video cameras usually have small screens, about 2 inches, and often display only the most important information such as battery level and remaining video recording time.

You can easily take a small video camera around with you. Whenever a picture-perfect moment comes up, you’re ready with your camera and can start shooting at once.
